How to choose an autumn jersey
by Souke Sports on Nov 01, 2022
When the seasons are less predictable and the weather forecast throughout the day swings between sun, rain, or wind, we have a choice to try and grit through the weather, or to decide if there’s more sense in dressing accordingly. Here are some key features to look for a suitable fall jersey:
1. Keep Warm in the morning and at night
Autumn weather can be unpredictable, and temperature variations can be large.
If cycling in the morning and evening is something you enjoy, make sure to dress in layers because it can still be chilly when the sun is out in the morning and evening.
2. Convenient and Portable
Due to the unpredictable weather in the fall, it's also crucial to think about the wearable and protable. This avoids over-or under-wearing owing to daytime temperature variations.

2. Short sleeve jersey with Souke arm sleeves with Souke windproof vest
Long and short-sleeved jerseys are the basic foundation to ensure sweat absorption during cycling. Souke windproof vests can protect you from chilly winds, and arm sleeves can keep you warm as well as shield you from the sun.
You can fold the vest and sleeves into the back pocket if you start to become a little warm.

2. Short bib pants with leg sleeves
In the same way as the top, the Souke leg sleeves can keep both warmth and sun protection. If you don't need them, you can take off the leg sleeves and put it in the back pocket of the top without affecting your riding trip.
3. Breathable Fabric
Fall fabrics will remain highly breathable, allowing moisture to evaporate as wind passes over the body. Additionally, these jerseys will sometimes feature reflective detailing to increase your visibility on the road.
In these swing seasons, you will need to consider wearing a long sleeve jersey with a windproof vest. Spring and fall options will almost always have a full zipper down the front to adjust airflow across the front of your torso.
